Get there early so you do not have to wait for house tour. Definitely take free Slave tour and Garden tour. You can do these if you have a long wait for house tour
A must see for all history buffs. The tour guide we had was wonderful. She was very sweet and very knowledgeable about the history of Monticello. We were actually her first tour!
